A Company of Fools

Only a Fool would try to play Shakespeare on the streets, and 25 years ago a small group of emerging artists who did that very thing embraced the name as their warrior mark. Thus a Company of Fools was born. That we are still around 25 years later is a humbling mystery to me – after all, it’s not like the name is one that inspires respect or confidence!

Well, here we are once again, coming to the end of another season. Our last show The Public Servant is in full rehearsals and we’re just a week away from opening. Sales are going extremely well, which reminds me, if you haven’t purchased your tickets yet, you better do it fast.
